Modern Hanafuda, Closing Shop

Hello my lovely mustachioed backers!

I hope this message finds you well. I realized the other day that it had been over two years since I started drawing pictures for my Modern Hanafuda cards and boy! has the time flown by! However, like all good things, Modern Hanafuda, in its current rendition, is coming to an end.

That’s right! Our initial Kickstarter stock is running low and I have decided not to reprint a second edition. For collectors, your decks just got a little more collectible (especially those signed copies). For people who still play Koi Koi, you might shuffle your decks a little more gingerly in the coming months.

I had a great run these past couple years and I have gained invaluable knowledge about manufacturing, shipment, business, customer relations, taxes, etc. But, I know none of that knowledge and learning would have happened without your pledges. It’s hard to explain how much your support helped me along the way, but it really did and I want to say, one last time:



So, consider this your official heads up! If you’d like to grab one more deck or perhaps send a copy to a friend or family member this holiday, you can still purchase a deck through my Shopify store: The remaining decks will be first come, first serve. The store’s last day will be October 31st, 2014 and will be closed, for the foreseeable future, on November 1st, 2014.

Thank you again to each and everyone one of you for your support these past couple years. A toast to your gracious support and to your future endeavors! Hopefully in two more years time, you will still be playing a game or two of Koi Koi.
